my first race :-P (dont worry, its not really street racing)
Well.....tonight I raced my first 'street race'.
But this one was just for fun....coming home from going clothes shopping with the fam., i was driving the minivan....pulled off the highway and up at the top of the ramp is a stop light.....2 lanes......this civic hatchback with fart pipe and LED wipers pulls up next to me and is rolling back, revving his engine, pulling forward (Yeah, i think this one actually was a stick, not an automatic in neutral ;-) )
My mom in the back seat was like (teasing me) "Rev back!".....
So i did....put it in neutral, rev'd a little, he reved way up there, i reved back.....put it in drive, and waited for the light to turn green.....i floor it (Hey, 0-60 in the van is what....10, 11 seconds maybe? probably more...flooring it for a few seconds doesnt meant speed haha)
Got up to about 25MPH (5 below the speed limit) and i was just a little ahead of him, but i had to turn off to go home.....
I got yelled at by my dad, but it was OK.....
Dare I mention that my dad was expecting me to 'chirp' the tires? (yeah, the vans tires are so hard that if you floor it from a dead stop they usually squeak a little bit)
It was all in fun...there was nobody else around....just thought it was kinda funny, and had to share of course :-P
